Terms & conditions




  • These terms & conditions apply to any work done for the Client (you) by me (Anya Hastwell).

  • The Client is under no obligation to offer me work; neither am I under any obligation to accept work offered by the Client.

  • I will provide service(s) as mutually agreed, confirmed in writing by the Client.

  • The work will be carried out unsupervised at such times and places as determined by me, using my own equipment.

  • I confirm that I am self-employed, am responsible for my own income tax and National Insurance contributions, and will not claim benefits granted to the Client's employees.

  • I am not VAT registered.


Project terms

  • I agree to attend the Client's or other premises for necessary meetings, the time spent and agreed reasonable expenses incurred to be reimbursed by the Client.

  • The completed work will be delivered on or before the date agreed, for the agreed fee, which will be based on the description of the work required and the brief, both supplied by the Client.

  • If, however, on receipt of the item to be worked on or at an early stage, it becomes apparent that significantly more work is required than had been anticipated in the preliminary discussion/brief, I may renegotiate the fee and/or the deadline.

  • Similarly, if, during the term of the project, additional tasks are requested by the Client, I may renegotiate the fee and/or the deadline.

  • In the unlikely event that the Client is affected by extraordinary or difficult circumstances that cause delay (e.g. family crisis, illness etc.), the Client should contact me to discuss the terms of the rescheduling.

  • If I am affected by similar extraordinary or difficult circumstances that cause delay, I will contact the Client in writing at the earliest opportunity and do my best to renegotiate the time frame of the project, or find an alternative supplier to undertake your project.


Fees and payment terms

  • The Client will pay me a fee per hour OR per printed page OR an agreed flat fee for the job, plus VAT where applicable.

  • If the project is lengthy, I may invoice periodically for completed stages.

  • Unless agreed otherwise at the outset, payment will be made within 30 days of receipt of invoice, according to the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 (amended 2002 and 2013).



Copyright and confidentiality

  • Any content created by myself as part of the copy-editing or proofreading process will become the copyright of the Client, unless otherwise agreed.

  • The nature and content of the work will be kept confidential and not made known to anyone other than the Client and its contractors without prior written permission.

  • Under the terms of the Data Protection Act 1998, the Client (you) and I (Anya Hastwell) may keep on record such information (e.g. contact details) as is necessary. Either may view the other's records to ensure that they are relevant, correct and up to date.


This agreement is subject to the laws of England and Wales, and both myself (Anya Hastwell) and the Client agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the English and Welsh courts.

The following terms and conditions are given as a guide so that both you (the Client) and I have a full understanding of what to expect during the process of working together.

If you have any queries or worries, please do contact me.
